Open to anyone with at least five years professional experience in journalism;
Freelance journalists, as well as reporters and editors currently working at a news organization, may apply.
The Harold W. McGraw, Jr. Center for Business Journalism, an initiative of the City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism, began offering Fellowships to accomplished business journalists in the summer of 2014. Applications will generally be accepted twice a year — in the spring and the fall. The upcoming fall deadline is December 15, 2016; spring applications will be due May 31, 2017. Typically, the center will award grants of $5,000 a month for one to three months; in exceptional cases, we’ll consider longer grants based upon specific proposals.
The aim of the McGraw Fellowship for Business Journalism is to support in-depth, ambitious coverage of critical issues related to the global economy and business. In an age when many news organizations no longer have the resources to tackle complex, time-consuming stories, the Fellowships enable experienced journalists to do the deep reporting needed to produce a serious piece of investigative, analytic, or narrative journalism.
The McGraw Fellowship for Business Journalism is open to anyone with at least five years professional experience in journalism. Freelance journalists, as well as reporters and editors currently working at a news organization, may apply.
How to Apply
Applicants should submit a well-focused story proposal of no more than three pages through the accompanying online form. Think of it as pitch, much like you would submit to an editor at a newspaper, magazine, digital outlet, or radio station: give us enough preliminary reporting and documentation to demonstrate that the story is solid. The proposal should highlight what’s new and significant about the story, why it matters and what its potential impact might be. The proposal should also note where significant stories on the subject have run elsewhere and how the proposed piece would differ. Applicants should also briefly outline a proposed reporting plan and a timeline for completing the story, and let us know if a media outlet is lined up to run the story.
In addition, applicants should enclose three journalism samples. The samples should be professionally published work that showcases your ability to tackle an in-depth story in the proposed medium. Please also provide us with a resume and references from two editors or others familiar with your work; if that is a problem, please contact us to discuss alternatives.
No budget is required at the time of application, but finalists may be asked to provide a rough budget estimate or further information on their project at that time.
Our mission at the Harold W. McGraw, Jr. Center for Business Journalism is to enhance the quality and depth of business and economic news coverage. Financed by a $3 million grant from the Harold W. McGraw, Jr. Family Foundation, the Center was established at the City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism in January 2014 to support veteran business journalists and train young reporters entering the field.
